Aston Villa are in for Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Yves Bissouma, Sky Sports’ Dharmesh Sheth reports.
Villa have already agreed one January deal, with Philippe Coutinho set to arrive on loan from FC Barcelona.
And now it seems Bissouma, who’s made a century of Premier League appearances for Brighton since his arrival from LOSC Lille in 2018, is on their radar.
‘Aston Villa [are] interested’ in Bissouma, Sheth tweeted, with the midfielder now into the final 18 months of his contract.
However, he did note that Graham Potter ‘expects’ all his players to remain at Brighton this month.
Bissouma would be a magnificent signing for Steven Gerrard and Villa. He’s a ball-winning machine, ranking in the 94th percentile among positional peers for tackles per 90 and the 91st for interceptions (via FBRef).
It’s worth stressing, though, that The Seagulls seem to have no plans to sell.
